Background

The final regulations that are the subject of this correction revised §§ 51.2544, Tolerances, and 51.2557, Tolerances.

Need for Correction

As published, minor insect injury or vertebrate injury was inadvertently omitted from regulatory text § 51.2544, Table II paragraph (b) and § 51.2557, Table I paragraph (b). Additionally, mold, rancid, decay was incorrectly listed in § 51.2544, Table II paragraph (b)(1), and § 51.2557, Table I paragraph (b)(1). This document corrects those errors. The corrected tables conform to the definitions of serious damage in § 51.2547 and § 51.2560.
